Slide Groundwater Applications




Slide is a 2D limit equilibrium slope stability program which can be used for the analysis and design of embankments. The effect of groundwater seepage, external loads and support can be determined.

See each of the listings below for more details:




This example demonstrates the use of Slide for analyzing the stability of an earth embankment dam. The embankment was built in Lanester, France, and induced to failure for testing and research purposes in 1969. The entire embankment is assumed to represent a dry tension crack zone. A water pressure grid is used to model pore water pressure in the embankment foundation layers.

This example demonstrates the use of Slide for analyzing the stability of a geosyntheticreinforced embankment on soft soil. The sand embankment is modeled as a MohrCoulomb material while the foundation material is a soft clay with varying undrained shear strength. The geosynthetic has a tensile strength of 200 KN/m, and frictional resistance against slip of 31 degrees.

This paper uses a case study of road embankment failure near Pentalia in southwest Cyprus to review the available tools for the analysis of slope instability. Both Slide and Phase2 were used to analyze the stability of the embankment.
